Some of the most enthralling designs exist in pieces that suggest space subtly rather than firmly defining it, and Corbeilles by Pierre Brichet is a collection of baskets in which the voids are as integral to their forms as the materials themselves.

Extremely fine strips of birch were plotted and laser-cut to create the lovely layers of these perfect panniers. The shape of each object has been created with the help of notched dividing bands along the bottom, while towards the handles at the top of the pieces, the wooden ribbons find themselves merging.

A variety of different models have been designed for Corbeilles by Pierre Brichet, each with its own fetching fragility. There is a softness to the natural laminated baskets, and with just a little added color, those painted black assert far more authority over the space they occupy.
